US President Joe Biden is in Belfast on an historic four-day visit to Northern Ireland and the Republic.
Biden was greeted by Prime Minister Rishi Sunak as he stepped off Air Force One at Belfast International Airport.
His visit marks the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement – a peace deal which helped end 30 years of violent conflict in Northern Ireland.
The White House hailed the tremendous progress since it was signed in 1998. But Biden’s trip is overshadowed by the fact that Northern Ireland’s power-sharing government is not functioning.
According to reports, it collapsed last year when the Democratic Unionist Party, one of the biggest parties at Stormont – pulled out as part of a protest against post-Brexit trade rules for Northern Ireland.
